Innovation in Hops

Innovation in Hops

As industry leaders in breeding and innovation, the Yakima Chief family of companies strive to provide our brewing customers with novel new experimentals and unparalleled hop products which serve to push the boundaries of beer as we know it. 

Many of our dear brewing friends descend upon the Yakima Valley every year to evaluate the new crop, meet new colleagues, and of course to see and smell what's new in our experimental hopyards. If you ever have the opportunity to come visit us, you will not regret it!

However, we understand that it is not always feasible to pack up your whole brewing team and fly them out to Yakima for a week. 

It is with this in mind that Yakima Chief Ranches and Yakima Chief Hops have partnered with Bale Breaker Brewing Company to bring new and exciting hops right to you! Beginning in 2019, we will be brewing four special-release beers every year that will offer a sneak peek into what we're working on.

This series will explore the nuanced aroma profiles of the most exciting experimental hops in the world, as well as the most progressive and efficient hop products available. And the best part is that we will be bringing these beers right to you, our brewing customers.

Contact your sales representative at YCH for more information on the release dates and formulations.
